As the reporter says I would hate to fill up the fuel tank.

I thought LGW one one of the first airports to get them. Have you been watching Inside Gatwick, because I thought I saw one of the new fire engines at LGW from the tv programme. Anyway they do look really awesome!

Newcastle already got those in 2006: http://freespace.virgin.net/andrew.henry/

and one of them was already shown on a fire safety fair in Germany in June 2005: http://bos-fahrzeuge.info/einsatzfah...ort_-_ARFF_-_Panther_CA5_6x6_-_FLF
Fortunately, they changed the colour scheme until delivery.
